featuring "the everyday chair"

October 07, 2012

We want comfort and the pieces in our home to be authentic and inspire our everyday. Our children and their future is important to us, so through our designs we seek ways to reduce our footprint by sourcing, designing and making sustainable pieces that celebrate the old and are mixed with newly engineered materials. Pool parties, colouring, potty training, eating together, quiet mornings and all the other simple enjoyments in life,… that’s our living. That’s what studio50 makes stuff for…to be used, appreciated and last for a really, really, really long time.

Featuring "the everyday chair". A chair offering years of enjoyment relaxing anywhere, be it inside your home, outside or both.

 

 

The frame of both the chair and the footstool is constructed of solid spruce. All sides and ends of the each piece of wood is given 2 coats of a semi-transparent stain specially formulated by Woodmate, a hybrid system that blends urethane, acrylic and Linseed oil. The set above was stained with "chocolate", but there is a wide selection of colours to choose from. The pieces are sealed with 2 more coats of a clear protective coating also by Woodmate and then assembled. All visible screw holes on the sides are plugged and finished, we've left the pocket holes on the back exposed for accent.

The removable cushion is designed to lift out for cleaning, storage by tilting up and back against the frame of the chair.

There are 4 layers that make up the cushion.
The seat base is a linear low density polyethylene board, that is made in Canada. It is 100% environmentally friendly made from hygienic post industrial waste. It is high impact resistant. non-toxic and odourless, chemical and corrosion resistant, fungi and decay resistant and waterproof.
Topping the board is a high density polyethylene fibre made for outdoor and marine applications. The unique lace design does not absorb moisture and allows air to freely circulate. speeding up drying time. It is topped with 3 layers of polyester batting to give extra comfort. Both these materials do not absorb moisture, nor support the growth of mould or mildew.
The fabric covering the cushion is Sunbrella, which is fabricated specifically for outdoor wear and tear. It is made of 100% solution dyed acrylic fibres, to withstand exposure to sun, rain, and chlorine. The fabric is also anti-microbial and mildew resistant. To clean all you do is lift the whole cushion out, rinse with mild soap and water or bleach for stubborn stains, rinse and let air dry!

 

 

The footstool features a custom hand-pressed concrete panel that also can be lifted out.

Every function has been considered in the design to ensure a solid investment to compliment an indoor/outdoor blended lifestyle. Kids, stains, weather, storage, sustainable, pets, life...ready to enjoy.

Chair Dimensions: 34" high from ground to top of chair back
Seat height with cushion: 17"

Seat: width 26", depth 23.5"

So Much More Than Just a Wine Decanter...But we'll start there.

One of the simple pleasures in life is the sharing of wine with friends. It appears to also be one of the world’s oldest pastimes. In 2007, inside a cave in Armenia, archeologists uncovered fermentation vats, a wine press, storage jars and pottery sherds. They were dated from approximately 6,100 years earlier.

If a Rock Bottom Vessel has ever reminded you of time spent in your high school science class, there’s a very good reason! The glass flasks that we use at Studio50 are made of “science glass” – that is, borosilicate glass (often referred to as  “boro” glass.)
